Picplus makes all kinds of photos interactive in an easy and intuitive way, with no need to use code. In the field of art and museums, this feature gives a new dimension to emblematic artworks like the famous triptych of the Early Netherlandish master Hieronymus Bosch: the Garden of Earthly Delights.

From a public domain image with high resolution Picplus can highlight some of the most curious details about its history and its development through the use of markers. It is also possible to comment on broader areas of the image, and it is especially useful in cases like this, full of symbolism and hidden codes.

A subtle color can be picked up, so it does not obstruct the artwork contemplation. Areas and hotspots can point out the key parts of the picture, such as the winks to the alchemy in the upper strip of the central panel or the representation of masculine and feminine sin. Nothing is a simple coincidence in this picture.

The possibility of integrating great detail images or videos of experts explaining the historical context, for example, allows the painting to turn into a living documentary. This is just a sample of how much one could delve into one of the most mysterious and fascinating works of Art History.
